|This fish, called Gourami, was on lots of menus |
in Bali but we had never heard of it before.
It was a dead good white fish.
|One thing we were very impressed with was |
how well our food was always presented.
Here is a beautiful tower of roast veggies
with mozzarella - it looks good enough to eat!
|Cap cay - a Chinese influenced Indonesian dish of stir fried |
vegetables and meat. Simple, and tasty.
|Ok fine, we ate a lot of "western" food! |
But it had been so long since we'd seen a
Mexican restaurant and I had wanted to go
for my birthday! Anyway, mega tasty burrito!
|I can't remember the name of this dish but it was a tuna|
steak covered with a delicious, spicy tomato and red
pepper sauce, served with sticky red rice and crispy onions.
|Tuna again, this time topped with Indonesian style sambal. |
This is basically raw onion, tomato, chilli, garlic and lemon
grass all smashed together with lime juice. Yum.
|This vegetable kept popping up everywhere. It's some kind of|
spinach-like leaf, possibly called morning glory. It's tasty and
we've had it all over Asia, this is just our first photo of it.
|One of the best things we've eaten so far. It's a fish called Mahi-mahi, |
and it's a very light, mild white fish that came as a huge barbecued
steak with sauce. I wish I could eat this every day!
|Dave says that these shrimps were amazing. Seven huge|
ones for £2.50, barbecued to crustacean perfection.
|The last two dishes were bought on|
the beach in Sanur at "Jack Fish".
Very cheap and amazing food.
The young waiter is also hilarious.
Check it out.
|A new fruit! This is called snake fruit, and I'm sure you|
can see why (hint: look at the skin!). It was very firm on
the outside, but once peeled, the fruit was similar to
lychee in texture, but tasted a bit like pineapple. Odd.
|This was a special kind of curry with tofu and something|
called tempe - it's made from whole soy-beans and is a
meat substitute that had a firm texture and a mild flavour.
They curry itself was dead good - coco-nutty and creamy.
|Gado-gado - an Indonesian tradition. Simply put, it's steamed|
vegetables covered in peanut sauce. It's really rich and the
sauce is much more like peanut butter than any other
we've encountered thus far. Good, but not brilliant.
|We also decided to try the red snapper. This was really|
creamy and moist, but also a bit lacking in seasoning.
Both were lovely bits of fish though.
|Here is the kitchen, outside the restaurant. This woman|
is preparing the sausages that are made from parts of the
sucking pig. The meat is used to make all sorts of dishes.
And now for some fun...
|Dragon fruit shake! I always thought|
dragon fruits were white inside, but
they can be fuchsia pink too!
|This one's for you Catherine! A new|
flavour of Walkers. Sometimes we
got a really salmony one, which was
a bit weird, but generally, not bad.
|To answer the question you are undoubtedly|
screaming at your computer screens...
yes, it tasted just like normal Pepsi.
